From the band's second record 'Saptak', comes one of MHB's most popular songs, 'Andholan' which is a largely instrumental song with a central vocal section.
The song features solos from all members and has become a favourite with music fans over the years.
'Andholan' is an Eastern Classical Term for a style of singing which involves expressive use of 'Meend' or slides from one note to the next in a raag or melody.
The word 'Andholan' also means revolution or mass movement in Hindi

Lyrics

There is no peace without you
I am in agony over memories of you
I spend the nights counting the stars
Your absence pains my heart
And brings suffering to my being
There is no peace without you
I am in agony over memories of you.
